Re: Grub Customizer for Q4OS

Update on grub-customizer 2 years later...
I was pleased to see the program installed nicely with a simple "sudo apt install grub-customizer"
I guess this means the program isn't considered as "testing" anymore, and in now available from the default repository.
It worked well for what I wanted to do.
I had read some time ago the the use of this program wasn't recommended - but I guess if it is in the repository, it means this warning is meaningless?

One question I am wondering - there is an option to write to MBR. I didn't do that, I simply saved the changes and the boot menu was modified as I wanted it. What does it do if you write to MBR?
